Olic: 'We showed our character'

Wolfsburg - VfL Wolfsburg were understandably delighted after picking up a 2-1 victory at home to Werder Bremen, who rued "individual mistakes" for their third successive defeat.

In training I try to score goals like that all the time so when the ball came in I had to make the most of it. We’ve dropped a few points recently, so I was desperate for all three points here. Now I’m very happy and I think the whole team is too. It’ll definitely help us to progress. The

defeat in Berlin

a few days ago affected us but we showed our character today and didn’t really gift them any chances.

I think we played pretty well, even if we needed five or ten minutes to get into the game. Bremen made their presence felt at the beginning but then we took control of the match and created a few chances. We went ahead but then missed an opportunity to make it 2-0. We knew Bremen were dangerous - they’ve shown that in their last few games - and they equalised, but thankfully we managed to score the winner just after half time.

Both of their goals came from individual mistakes. We managed to get ourselves back into the game but unfortunately it wasn’t enough at the end. Now we need to forget about this one and keep working hard. We have to pick up points - that’s all that matters right now. We’re going to analyse our mistakes, train hard and then go for all three points against Freiburg next week.
